Abstract:
This research is an attempt to assess the awareness level and constraints in adoption of IPM technology among the farmers in Rajasthan, India. In Rajasthan, Zone Ib, comprising of Sri Ganganagar and Hanumangarh districts, was purposively selected for the research. Cotton growing IPM farmers were selected based on the PPS (Probability Proportional to Size) method from two villages for the crop year 2017–18. Farmers were found to be highly aware about neem-based formulations, nutrient management, intercultural operations and mechanical traps. The major constraints in adoption of IPM technology were found to be scarcity and high wage of skilled labour under cultural constraints, time consuming and laborious method of mechanical practice under mechanical constraints, unavailability of bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides under biological constraints, high cost of plant protection chemicals under chemical constraints, and lack of separate marketing facility for remunerative pricing under other constraints.
